"This wonderfully flavorful banana bread is a real crowd pleaser! It's sweetened with molasses instead of sugar. What a nice variation!" — stellaluna

whole wheat flour
I loved this bread but made two changes to the recipe: I used only 1/2 C of molasses and I used spelt flour instead of whole wheat flour. Delicious and healthy too!
I know that to each his own, however this one wasnt a crowd pleaser in my home. It may be the molasses I used. I suggest using only light and not full flavor which is what I used. I am not familure with molasses and the recipe wasnt specific.
I was extremely skeptical about trying this recipe because of the molasses.
Am I ever glad I did. It is truly moist and delcious. I will be making this often!
This bread is excellant and very moist, but should be called Molasses Bread as you can't taste the bananas. Takes 4 bananas to make 2 cups.
Couldn't believe how easy it was to make
This recipe is great! I used blackstrap mollasses, so I cut it down to 1/2 a cup, and used four large bananas. It was moist and sweet, my family ate it in one sitting. I know not everyone liked this recipe, but I will make it whenever I have bananas now.
This bread was very tasty and exceptionally moist. I think it's the best bannana bread recipe that I've ever tried.
Excellent banana loaf!
I read other reviews first and I only used 1/2 cup of blackstrap molasses, and it was perfect. 1 cup would have been too much!
I also made sure that the bananas were nice and mashed: I used the blender, that worked beautifully.
I also used spelt flour instead of whole wheat.
Also, I added 1/2 cup of walmut crumbs and it was delicious. My husband and I ate it in one afternoon!
My kids weren't hip to the molasses. Guy at work, who loves molasses, liked it. Too molasses-y for my family but it was nice to try.
